Fees for Services:
HIGH SCHOOL COURSES
The School/District agrees to the services described below for the designated fee per semester based course or full year course enrollment.
The School/district agrees to pay fees for each student registered. Students will be considered registered 30 days after they have been enrolled in a course providing they have not been dropped by their school administrators during the first 30 days of the student’s enrollment period per the following terms:
Start Date: For students enrolled to begin with the start of the academic year or term, all courses begin in September or January on the date indicated in the Course Schedule. Students that are enrolled in a rolling enrollment course after the term start date will have a course start date of 24 hours from the day of the student’s enrollment date. The student’s enrollment date is the date that the student is added to the course roster.
Drop Period: The student will be granted a 30 day drop period beginning on the student’s course start date. Schools may drop a student for any reason during that time period. After 30 days, schools will be invoiced for that student enrollment. CT Virtual Learning staff will not drop or withdraw students from the system. This must be done by the District Online Learning Coordinator or guidance counselor at the participating school.
Home schooled students are required to pre-pay via credit card to secure their enrollment in a course. If home school students are dropped before the 30 day drop period has ended, we will credit the amount to their credit card. Home Schooled families must call CT Virtual Learning to request and confirm a dropped student at 860-515-3728.
Course Completion Time Frame: Core Curriculum courses are available in semester-long sessions, part A or part B on a flexible enrollment basis. Students may begin a course at any time, including the summer, and work at their own pace, finishing as quickly as they are able with no penalty or taking up to 20 weeks for a 16 week curriculum. Additional time can be arranged in eight week intervals for an additional charge of $90.00.
CREDIT RECOVERY COURSES
The School/district agrees to pay fees for each student registered. Students will be considered registered 2 weeks after they have been enrolled in a course providing they have not been dropped by their school administrators during the first 2 weeks of the student’s enrollment period per the following terms:
Start Date: Credit Recovery courses will be offered in 10 week schedules on a rolling enrollment basis throughout the school year and over the summer. Students will have a course start date of 24 hours from the day of the student’s enrollment date. The student’s enrollment date is the date that the student is added to the course roster.
Drop Period: The student will be granted a 2 week drop period beginning on the student’s course start date. Schools may drop a student for any reason during that time period. After 2 weeks, schools will be invoiced for that student enrollment. CT Virtual Learning staff will not drop or withdraw students from the system. This must be done by the District Online Learning Coordinator or guidance counselors at the participating schools. Home Schooled families must call CT Virtual Learning to request and confirm a dropped student at 860-515-3728.
Extension Policy: Credit Recovery courses are designed to be completed within 8-10 weeks. If a student does not complete their course within 10 weeks of their start date, schools may choose to let the student have an extra 4 weeks of teacher lead course time, for an additional charge of $75 per student per course.
Enrollment and Invoicing:
Registration System: When the District Online Learning Coordinator or counselor goes to CT Virtual Learning portal to register a student, they will see a balance allowance of the amount of money allocated by their school/district for this purpose. Once all the money is expended, no more students will be allowed to register until/unless additional funds are allocated. A credit card payment option is also available for your convenience. Schools often arrange to enroll students with a parent’s credit card.
Invoicing: Schools/Districts will be invoiced for students who are enrolled in courses after the drop period.
